Kiosk software – many applications
Specifically, kiosk software protects the application by blocking users from reaching the operating system or desktop. This prohibits users from changing systems settings or overwriting files stored locally.
A web based kiosk can be used to provide access to a specific website while blocking access to the rest of the web. It can also provide access to the entire web with or without a content filter to protect children.
Some applications include:
- Hotel lobbies
- Museum information kiosks
- Public Internet banking
- School and colleges
- City information terminals
- Internet cafes
- Library computers
- Waiting rooms – hospital, dentist, etc…
- Retail stores with online catalog
- Car dealership showroom
